Condemned Houston man loses appeal

A Houston man condemned for killing two Hurricane Katrina refugees, has lost his appeal of a conviction and death sentence.

The U.S. Supreme Court refused to review the case of 30-year old Antonio Lee Williams.

Williams, a three-times-convicted drug dealer, was arrested for the 2006 shooting deaths of Vincent Williams, 18, and Yolanda Styles, 22. The two were cousins and Katrina evacuees. They settled in Dallas and were in Houston visiting Styles' mother, when they were fatally shot in an apartment complex.

Evidence shows Williams is linked to at least three other slayings around the same time.  Two of those victims were also Katrina refugees.
